Full description
On this 8-hour tour you will discover the real French Riviera. The experienced bilingual driver guide will pick you up from the port in Cannes and guide you through the most beautiful and exciting places of the French Riviera. Take the advantage of the experienced bilingual guide to learn about wonderful culture, ancient history, shopping areas, and sightseeing in the South of France. During this magnificent tour you will travel through the amazing French Riviera to explore Eze, La Turbie, Monaco, Cannes, Antibes, and Saint-Paul-de-Vence. The first stop will be at the medieval village Eze, located at an altitude of 429 above sea level. You will visit the Fragonard factory to discover the secrets of perfume and explore the curious exotic gardens, great history, and fine art. You will then drive through the village La Turbie, also called the "Terrace of Monaco" due to the panoramic view of the Principality of Monaco. Here you can see the Trophy of the Alps, a roman monument built in 7 BC. You will then continue on to the luxurious Principality of Monaco, known as “The Rock” for its location on a rocky headland extending to the Mediterranean Sea. Here you will explore the Old Town and visit the Prince Palace, the Oceanographic Museum, and the cathedral built with white stone in the Neo-Romanesque style, where Grace Kelly and Rainier were married and buried. On the way to Cannes you will stop at the medieval village of Saint-Paul-de-Vence. By entering the city through the Royal Gates, you will lose yourself in the plexus of streets where every home is depicted like a souvenir store or an art studio. The tour then heads to Antibes, the city where Picasso lived. Explore the old quarters, where it seems that the spirit of the medieval times is still alive. Eventually you will reach Cannes, where the Cannes Film Festival takes place every year. Cannes is probably the most spectacular place of the French Riviera with its beautiful bay framed by mountains on land, its lovely beaches, the boutiques, and the famous Promenade de la Croisette that stretches for 2.5 kilometers along the sea. Here you can see the world-famous buildings including the Carlton, Majestic Barrière, Royal, the casino, Palais des Festivals, and Congresses.

We loved our guide Margarita. However we were promised 3 small vans instead of one large and one small which took up for time since the larger van was unable to get close once we got to Monaco near the Palace. Also on our trip description it has us visiting Eze and a perfume factory, Antibes, and St Paul De Vence. The group with the small van was able to do St Paul but we were not. We probably had way more time than needed in Monte Carlo and with having to walk with the larger van it kept us from visiting what was promised in the tour. It is not Margaritas fault she was great but felt like we did not get what we were supposed to.

Our guide Rene was fantastic, we booked a cruise excursion to Monto Carlo and the Cannes area. He took us to the most beautiful places. He was so very knowledgeable about the area. I cannot praise this experience enough. Don’t hesitate to book this tour & ask for Rene.
